Easy beach access.

Beautiful and quaint location right on the beach. Staff are all so nice and helpful. We ended buying beach chairs as there are not enough when it’s busy.

Location was amazing and accommodations were exceeding my expectations

I like where is it located. The staff was friendly and sweet! Thank you for the Complementary bottle of wine! It was cute and the place is cute too! We had a wonderful time and will be back :)

Close to the beach and designed for couples on a romantic getaway.

This is our fifth stay at Song of the Sea. We keep coming back because of the location and the amenities. It's a small resort and you are always able to get pool chairs or beach chairs. You can also walk next door to their sister property and use that pool or the pool bar. They have free bike rentals and free breakfast in the morning. We will continue to stay at this property in the future.

Our fourth time staying here. Walk right out to the beach. Tile floors in the rooms(I prefer not to stay in places with carpet). Suzie the breakfast lady is awesome. She has been making the complimentary breakfast for over 25 years and is so nice.

Quaint little inn that had a nice breakfast, great Cruiser Bikes, and a pool and hot tub. Area was a 10 min bike ride from lighthouse. Rooms were clean, AC worked, well lit, free WiFi. Defintiely goimg back.

Very quiet,comfortable room,included beach chairs,proximity to the beach. Also first floor room,didn't have to go up stairs. Bathroom a little small,otherwise nice, Refrigerator old and worn.

This property was wonderful. Had everything we needed and so close to the beach. Staff was very pleasant and helpful.

Right on beach, nice staff, clean facility, with a breakfast with many choices! Pool was very warm with a nice hot tub too! Would definitely stay again!

Pool looked nice but was a bit chilly when we visot ited so did use. Room was not well maintained and needed rehab badly. Bed was comfortable and was the only thing that appeared clean. Stayed from Friday to Wednesday yet room was not serviced once. Did get fresh towels one day, but had to get them myself as well as toilet paper since maid did not visit. Would not visit again. Quite disappointing given the ratings on Tripadvisor and Orbitz. Shower was sticky from day one, and wasn't ever cleaned after we arrived. Tub stopper did not work. Toilet seat was gross.

Great location, wonderful shelling and friendly staff

We love the place; this is our second stay. The entire visit was great.

This place was beautiful. Very quiet...relaxed atmosphere. Just feet from the beach..this hotel is the perfect place to stay if your looking for a romantic getaway. Super friendly staff...ready to meet your every need. I highly recommend this place.

we had red tide so the time there was limited. Loved the island as always.

The biggest problem was that the air conditioner was not able to take the moisture out of the air even though the room was cool. So all your clothes always felt damp. I also didn’t like having to eat breakfast outdoors in the heat. The breakfast was excellent.
